VERDICT – 5/5

 
PROS –
1) A quintessential 90s high octane stylish entertainer, full of memorable characters. Simon West clearly watched a lot of John Woo movie before making his debut film.
2) Funny and action-packed from the first minute to the last.
3) John Malkovich as Cyrus “The Virus”. The primary antagonist who makes the movie more watchable.
4) The action-filled climax destroying almost half of Las Vegas.

 

CONS –
N/A
